                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TALCAMA games.  Fortune did not smile upon ERRATA this 
time out who this turn suffered a fall into 13th position in the wake of a 0-1-0 
round.  DESTITUTE NOBLE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested SPONGEBOB and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, A'S SPECIAL BLEND put down HARBOR MASTER, causing her to 
lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has SUSHI in the past 
laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet 
again.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights 
without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city TALCAMA.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in TALCAMA 
these days is OF WOLF AND MAN II.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid 
them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding OF WOLF AND MAN II.  Indeed it was SHEPHERDS.  
Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  JAMESON take 
warning!  You have more than a few enemies in TALCAMA.  A match that raised a few 
eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that JAMESON posted a challenge against the 
more highly recognized BOATSWAIN.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand JAMESON 
was beat by BOATSWAIN.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there 
is but one reward--death.  This past week SPONGEBOB, at 7-6-0, departed TALCAMA 
forever.  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, 
better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in TALCAMA.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are 
angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
